The bishop was feeling rather sea-sick. Confoundedly sea-sick, in fact. An Anglican bishop, on recuperative leave from his African diocese, alights at the island of Nepenthe for a short stay on his passage to England. Soon he is caught up in the wild and exuberant antics of visitors and residents. Norman Douglas's famed, and infamous, novel of Capri is a hedonistic journey and an unforgettable classic.

About Author

Norman Douglas lived a long and scandalous life. Born in 1868, he was a lifelong hedonist and spent much of his time 'hopping it' across borders to avoid arrest. South Wind, his most highly regarded work, is set on the fictional island Nepenthe, a thinly disguised portrait of Douglas's beloved island of Capri.
